NV Yarran Riverina Cuvee Blanc
This dual medal winning sparkling is perfect to have in the fridge as your everyday bubbly.
How's it taste?
Yarran's crisp Riverina sparkling is a revelation. So much flavour and yet it's really well balanced too. As they say in the classics, a bargain at half the price.
How was it made?
This is the first batch of fruit to be received at the winery each year. Chardonnay is picked early to create a fresh and youthful wine style showing lemon, citrus aromatics and a nice light fruit driven finish. The wine is aged on yeast for up to 9 months prior to bottling; a fine elegant style with great mousse and a touch of dosage (sweetness) remains for balance.
Who made it?
Yarran Wines is a family owned and operated winery. The vineyards, winery and cellar door are all located a short distance from Yenda, NSW. Yenda is part of the Riverina region, an area that has a long tradition for winemaking dating back to 1913 and is well reknowned for producing high quality wines. Fruit has been grown on the family vineyard for 35 years. An interest to create wine from a viticultural background occurred in the late 90’s. The family business has since grown from producing a single Shiraz in 1998 to many different varietal table wines, rich fortified blends and also a classic Riverina Botrytis sweet wine style. The winemaking philosophy behind the wines has evolved over time with each vintage being finely tuned to deliver the highest quality wines to possible. Creative winemaking coupled with a strong commitment to expressing regional style has been a rewarding mix. Each vintage Yarran wines continue to be of a high standard and have gathered exciting accolades and reviews. Chief Winemaker, Sam Brewer, is always trying something a little less mainstream each year, attempting to challenge himself and deliver wines with an extra element and character to the market place.
